Absolutely lovely motel offering anything that you could want. We stayed here to visit the pools but found so much more on offer. We are on an extended stay from the UK so to find free laundry facilities, towels to take to the pools and a great place was all we could ask for. The hosts were really friendly helpful. It was just a pity that we couldn’t have stayed longer.

Thank you for providing such an exceptional place to stay for young families. The secure courtyard and personal swings were such a bonus! We also loved the layout of the two bedroom unit as well. The extras were such a treat, from the chocolates to the plasters and mosquito repellent! The owners also called straight away to let us know we had forgotten our sons 'blankie' which would have meant a trip back to Hanmer to get it!! An Easter egg was also attached. We will be back and would highly recommend to anyone.

What a wonderful motel, we stayed here part of the hanmer spa couples massage package. It is a lovely place and beautifully set out everything was so neat and tidy and perfectly laid out. The lady at reception was so lovely we really enjoyed our stay. I also loved that it's called settlers motel and they use all settlers furniture I thought that was a really neat touch. Many thanks

Both of the hosts were lovely and we felt very welcome from the moment we stepped in the reception! The room was very spacious and super clean. Everything you might need is available (free towels to go to the pools, free laundry facility, umbrella's to use in case of rain). We can definitely recommend this hotel !

Helpful charming host's. Really nice tidy place to stay. Good access to towels for use at the pools. Comfortable bed. Good location, close to the pools. Thoroughly loved and recommend having a pamper package, through the Hanmer thermal pools.

This was the 12th accomodation we stayed at during our month in New Zealand and by far the best. Lovely warm welcome and beautiful 1 bedroomed apartment. Very well equipped and a free laundry as well which was very welcome. Close to the springs and all the restaurants. Highly recommend this lovely relaxing motel.

A really nice motel with quality fit out. The decor is neutral. Everything is clean and tidy. The place has free wifi which is good and fast. It is only a short walk (5 min) to the hot pools and the town shops and restaurants. We have stayed here twice because we liked it so much the first time.

As we are from Christchurch we frequently stay in Hamner Springs. This was our first time staying and wont be our last. From the moment we got in we were welcomed from the start super helpful. Our friends were there before us and the owner walked us down personally to our room and welcomed us into our room and made sure us and our friend's were ok and we had everything before leaving. We had a two bedroom units which is was of a decent size. The rooms were large and plenty of room to move around. The kitchen area has everything you need and the living area was large with a really comfy couch. The complex and our room were clean and tidy and modern. There was plenty of off street parking. A short walk to town. A big thank you to all and can't wait to come back and stay again.

Lovely hosts, very welcoming. Accommodation was pristine, couldn't fault it. When we were stuck due to a cyclone Sally kindly sorted us out another room for the night. Would totally recommend. Great DVD collection, really enjoyed watching the Chelsea 2012 Champions League Final.
